41. Islander - Patrick Barkham

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: £19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

The British Isles are an archipelago made up of two large islands and 6,289 smaller ones. Some, like the Isle of Man, resemble miniature nations, with their own language and tax laws; others, like Ray Island in Essex, are abandoned and mysterious places haunted by myths, ghosts and foxes. In this vividly observed book, Patrick Barkham explores some of the most beautiful landscapes in the British Isles. Meeting all kinds of islanders, from nuns to puffins, from local legends to rare subspecies of vole, he seeks to discover what it is like to live on a small island, and what it means to be an islander.
